Check timing, check firing order, 1342- direction of rotation clockwise, check fuel filter free of water, if that dose not help, tell us about timing belt condition and if there is oil mix with water in side engine, good luck.

3400pontiac back fires when trying to start


Anytime an engine backfires it means there is a timing issue, either the ignition is out of time or the engine. If you have recently given the car a tune up I would double check the firing order and placement of the plug wires. If not I would check the crank sensor and the exciter wheel that is attached to the crank shaft. If the ignition system checks out that would leave the physical engine timing.

Did you check the fuel pump relay ? The relay gets power from a fuse and also from the PCM relay. The computer grounds the relay to turn it on for 3 seconds when you turn the key on, then only after the computer "sees" RPM or oil pressure.

2000 olds 3.5 Dohc. Changed fuel filter checked fuel pressure @40 lbs resting cranking 45 lbs When i try and start it in the morning indoors won't fire crank the key to acc then on then back to acc then...


Which is the problem, no fire, or no crank. No fire means to spark to engine, but engine turns over fine. No crank means engine won't turn over when key is turned. I'm assuming engine will not turn over. Three most common problems. 1. Weak battery (get tested at auto parts store). Will hold charge for short time once started, but loses it when sits overnight. 2. Bad starter. Possible but not likely, still not out of the question. 3. Bad battery cables. This is an easy test. Take a pair of jumper cables and bypass the battery cables by connecting black side of jumper cable to "-" of battery and block of engine, and red of jumper cables to "+" of battery and (tap) Battery terminal post on starter...engine should turn over. Ensure you take all safety precautions to prevent car from moving during this procedure. Best of luck resolving this problem.

2000 vw new bettle diesel won't start battery dead when i bought it touched it w/starting fluid cranked cut off


If the engine does not reach 300 rpm while cranking..engine will not start.

It needs good battery power to crank these with spare power to run the electronics.

If with good battery if fires and immediately stops, and the little 'yellow car' is illuminated in the cluster.... the immobiliser is active and you need a shop to fix it.

BTW..Stop with the Easy Start fluid already. You'll break a piston ring or worse...such as....the Glow Plugs will cause a back fire and you will likely strip the timing belt...major repairs...like $3500 and up.

I need all the diffeent firing order for gm 3400 2000 I have a back firing issue that won't let the van start?


it sounds more like the crank sensor is bad. when crank sensor has failed or is failing, certain timing problems will arise. the engine may start but shut off in a few minutes or seconds of operation. more than likely engine will not start. it controls timing, engine backfire, no spark or pulse at injectors, car will stall when stopped. heres the firing order: 2-4-6 front from left to right
1-3-5 rear left to right hope this helps !! go here for a diagram-- http://autorepair.about.com/library/firing_orders/bl-fo-6417.htm have a very good day !!

89 F-150 5.0 EFI I got spark, Got fuel, Turns over but Wont start...Any ideas?


if truck does not start it sounds like a bad crank sensor! have it scanned to be sure. a bad crank sensor as it controls timing more than likely engine will not start at all. engine back fire or irregular rpm function. no start and no pulse to injectors, car will stall when stopped. p0335 to p0342 are the sensor problem codes.

Replace the water pump and timing belt on a 2002 dodge caravan 2.4 lt. Now the engine rotates but does not start you can hear the starter spinning. What could it be?


You could have forgotten to try and crank-up the car before you bolted things back again. This would have allowed you to correct any mistake. Try and rotate the distributor (if it has one) while an assitant cranks the engine. If it does not fire up, remove the #1 spark-plug, hand turn the crank-pulley,and get it to BTDC. Replace the sparkplug, and crank up the engine again. If it does not fire, try the plug wires, and get them in proper firing-order. A shop manual such as Haynes is one of your best bets to do a job like this.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.

2002 pt cruiser dies then fires right back up randomly going down the highway


most of the times when the car cut out it is cause by the crank angle sensor you wait for it to cool down and it will fire back up again, best way to check it is to take a bottle of water with you and try to locate (which is between the fire wall and the engine on the driver side on the engine block) where the crank angle sensor. when the car cuts out pour the water on the sensor to cool it down if the car then starts right away that is the problem.
